‘Bernie World’ Melts Down As Staffers Go Public In Sanders Campaign Civil War – By Emily Zanotti (Daily Wire) / June 4 2020
Bernie Sanders’ staffers who aren’t on board with the socialist Vermont Senator’s shift to supporting former Vice President-turned-presumptive 2020 Democratic nominee Joe Biden have declared war on those who are, and the battle royale between factions spilled over onto social media over the weekend.
Sanders and his top advisors, Faiz Shakir and Analilia Mejia, are reportedly in the middle of inking a deal with Biden’s team which would preserve Sanders’ delegates but allow for Sanders and his allies to exert influence over the Democratic party platform, according to Politico.
But the tete-a-tete isn’t sitting well with career progressives and former hardcore Sanders’ supporters like David Sirota, who exploded in a rage at Shakir and Meija over the weekend, accusing them of throwing in with so-called Beltway insiders.
“I don’t know who needs to hear this, but many of us don’t want to hear career Beltway political operatives boasting about task forces while this sh*t is going on right now,” Sirota said, referring to ongoing racial unrest — a prime moment for progressives who have been working on the issue for some time. “Jfc — try to be a little less tone-deaf.”
Sanders’ current spokesman, Politico says, responded with a charge of his own: that Sirota, had absconded with confidential campaign documents.
